LONDON – We have got to hand it to Prince William. The stand-up guy has served in the British military as a search-and-rescue pilot for over seven years. If you were a king in waiting, would you be a motivated employee?

Anyway, now the Dutch of Cambridge has decided it’s time to leave the force and focus on other fronts. He and Princess Kate are going to move off the little island where he’s been stationed, and he will reportedly start to take on more public service, including conservation work (particularly involving endangered animals).

This way Prince William can spend more time with his baby boy too.
